The Bench recommended . the taking out of a prohibition order against Gardiner, seeing that he was giving way Tery much to drink. The Sergeant said accused was a man of means,' and got his liquor at private houses, but something ought to be done 1 with him. The Bench said they were willing to deal leniently with Gardiner if he would promise to go home to his farm and attend to his werk. Another appearance would deprive him of the option of a fine. Gardiner promised to go home arid behave himself properly m future, and he was let off with a fine of j 20s and costs. A nian who had never been tiefore the Court before was fined 5s for drunkenness, and a farmer who had nofc appeared for seven years, but would " try and not come back, jna hurry," was fined 40s and costs, or seven days' imprisonniftufc, for having been drunk m charge of a horse and cart.
